Former Manchester United striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been reappointed as Molde’s manager.

Solskjaer previously led the team with distinction between 2011 and 2014, when he left for an ill-fated stint in charge of Cardiff,.

Having overseen the Bluebirds’ relegation from the Premier League he was sacked last September after just eight months at the helm.

The 42-year-old is now back with a side who he steered to successive league titles and a cup success, and will be in the dugout when Celtic visit the Aker Stadion on Thursday night in the Europa League.

A statement on the Molde website read: “Molde FK has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as new manager of the club.

“Ole Gunnar enters with immediate effect and will lead the team against Celtic.”

Solskjaer replaces interim boss Erling Moe, who has looked after the first team since August.
